Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.

Resurrection Sunday 2019

Anointed Twice Mark 14:1-9 An anointing of Jesus with nard by a woman who would be remembered wherever the gospel Acts 10:37-38 Peter speaks of God anointing Jesus after His baptism Last Supper Mark 14:22-25 Jesus provides instructions for communion that we follow to this day. This was followed by His arrest, flogging, crucifixion – and burial. Three days later He rose to unbelief. Unbelief/Belief Mark 16:9-13 The unbelief was incredible! Three witnesses, yet the unbelief persisted. Mark 16:14 Jesus…
Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.

Mark 13:1-37

Jesus Foretells The Future Review – Connecting A Few Threads Micah 2:1-2, Mark 7:9-13, 11:16-17, 11:29-30, Matthew 3:7-8 What were the Pharisees and Sadducees truly like? Mark 10:20-22, 12:17, 12:41-44, 12:30 What does it mean to give to God what is God’s? 13:1-2 Jesus foretells the destruction of the temple. Largest stone still visible can be seen in the western wall tunnel. It has an estimated weight of 570 tons (2,000 pounds/ton or 1,140,000 pounds) and is 44.6 feet long,…
"Whose likeness and inscription is this?" They said to Him, "Caesar's." Jesus said to them, "Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's." And they marveled at Him.

Mark 12:1-17

The Cornerstone and Whose Image Review – The Fig Tree and John the Baptist Matthew 3:5-10 John the Baptist and the Pharisees and the Sadducees 11:12-14 The fig tree has no fruit and is cursed. 11:20-21 The fig tree had withered from its roots. 11:30 John’s baptism, was it from heaven or of human origin? 12:1-12 Introduction via 2 Samuel 12:1-10 Nathan, David, Bathsheba, and Uriah the Hittite Just as Jesus tells a story to trap the Pharisees, His Father…
And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them...

Mark 11:1-33

Fulfilling Old Testament Prophecies Review 10:46-52 Faith of the blind man. Last miracle (positive) recorded in Mark. First time Jesus is called by the messianic title Son of David not Jesus of Nazareth. Bartimaeus would not be quiet. He had faith, he had no doubt heard of Jesus and made the connection somehow that Jesus was the Son of David. Why did Jesus ask him what he wanted? Jesus wanted him to express his faith by communicating his need. Mark…
Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!

Mark 10:32-52

Review 10:23-31 Riches do not have the power to help one work or worm his way into heaven. Jesus after saying v25 “It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God” He adds v27 “With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.” In other words, Grace or Salvation is totally outside the sphere of human capacity.…
Mark 10:14

Mark 10:13-31

Divorce – The Lord said also unto me in the days of Josiah the king, Hast thou seen that which backsliding Israel hath done? she is gone up upon every high mountain and under every green tree, and there hath played the harlot. Jeremiah 3:6-4:4 Do we not all have one Father? Did not one God create us? Why do we profane the covenant of our ancestors by being unfaithful to one another? Judah has been unfaithful. A detestable thing…
Mark 10:1

Mark 10:1-12

Divorce is an Obscene Four Letter Word 13 If a man takes a wife and, after sleeping with her, dislikes her 14 and slanders her and gives her a bad name, saying, “I married this woman, but when I approached her, I did not find proof of her virginity,” 15 then the young woman’s father and mother shall bring to the town elders at the gate proof that she was a virgin. 16 Her father will say to the elders,…
Then a cloud appeared and covered them, and a voice came from the cloud: "This is my Son, whom I love. Listen to Him!"

Mark 9:1-29

Review: 8:34-9:1 He teaches not only the disciples, but the crowd that has followed them at a distance while they walked. He calls them all together because He has a message for everyone – not only for His disciples. Denying self means to live as an others-centered person. Parents do this all the time for their children. Jesus would carry a cross, and walk down death row; so must those who follow Him. Are we willing to deny ourselves and…
Mark 8:34

Mark 8:1-9:1

Review: 7:31-37 If the people in the region where amazed at what Jesus had done for the demon possessed man in chapter 5, here they were overwhelmed with amazement or utterly amazed because here was a man they brought to Jesus who was deaf and dumb, both incredibly real physical problems. These were Gentiles and this is made clear when we look at Matthew 15:30-31 where Gentiles praised the God of Israel because of Jesus. 8:1-9 From Jesus’ words it…
Mark 7:36

Mark 7:1-37

Review Last week I confused two locations at the end of chapter six (v53), the coastal city Genneserat on the NW shore of Sea of Galilee and the region of the Gerasenes on the SW shore of the Sea of Galilee with the cities Gergesa, Gadana. and Geresa shown. 6:53-56 Jesus and His disciples has been in this region before when they visited Capernaum and went throughout Galilee. The people remembered and recognized Jesus and with great caring and charity…
